1-20 Farris Billiard Supply sells all types of billiard equipment and is considering manufacturing its own brand of pool cues. Mysti Farris, the production manager, is currently investigating the production of a standard house pool cue that should be very popular. Upon analyzing the costs, Mysti determines that the materials and labor cost for each cue is \$25 and the fixed cost that must be covered is \$2,400 per week. With a selling price of \$40 each, how many pool cues must be sold to break even? What would the total revenue be at this break-even point?
